HVDC Transmission Link

Model and Simulate High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Transmission Link and Converter Technologies

ETAP HVDC Transmission Link provides capabilities to simulate and analyze AC/DC electrical power grids.


The integrated modeling of the HVDC Link is utilized to analyze steady-state and dynamic behavior of AC/DC transmission networks, such as optimal power flows, contingency, short-circuit, harmonics, protection, selectivity, and transient stability studies.

The HVDC link includes multiple control schemes and dynamic models for:

  • Rectification Station
  • Inversion Station
  • DC Grid
  • AC/DC Coupling Controls


HVDC Link Key Features
